Health & Technology: What young people really think

(Published in 2019)

Although people between 15 and 30 years old make up nearly a quarter of the world’s total population, the international community dedicates less than 2% of global development assistance for health toward young people. As digital natives young people bring a unique perspective to global discussions and can provide valuable contributions.

A coalition including Fondation Botnar, PATH, PMNCH, and Women Deliver asked more than 1,500 young people around the world to shed light on what young people really think about technology in global health.


  • What are young people’s top health concerns?
  • How many young people use technology for their health-related needs?
  • Are young people’s health concerns being adequately addressed?
  • How does the future of health look like?
